Tennant Keen On Doctor Who Movie

David Tennant is reportedly keen to star in a big screen version of Doctor Who.

Rag paper The Sun reports that Tennant wants to sign a new deal with the BBC that includes playing The Doctor in both a spinoff movie and the fifth series of the popular drama in 2010.

Tennant has yet to commit to the role beyond several specials that mark the end of Russell T. Davies's tenure as executive producer.

An insider on the show told the rag paper: "It looks like the film is going to happen in the next few years... everyone is keen now and the fans are clamouring. Part of David’s conundrum is that he wants to do films, so this looks like it would solve both issues."
